Barnstead Farmers and Gardeners Network
Don Walker, Co-founder
Barnstead Farmers and Gardeners Network want to extend our sincere
thanks to Governor Maggie Hassan and her staff for their generous
support for New Hampshire’s family farms.
with the Governor’s staff, we were able to establish July 26, 2014, as
Family Farm Day in the state of New Hampshire. This year’s Barnstead
Open Farm Day celebrated more than our unique community; it celebrated
the hard work and dedication of all family farms in New Hampshire, and
throughout our great nation.
farmers are truly the salt of the earth. This proclamation is for you!
Family farms have traditionally been the cornerstone of our state as
they contribute to the good health and economic vitality of the
community, as well as provide enrichment to the lives of all who visit
Family farms produce a diverse variety of goods that range from alpaca
fleece to fruits grown in New Hampshire’s orchards; and
Family farms are the primary source of products that support such
movements as farm-to-consumer, farm-to-restaurant, and farm-to-school;
Family farms are essential to the local food movement as they provide
fresh produce and other goods to many communities and seasonal visitors;
THEREFORE, I, MARGARET WOOD HASSAN, GOVERNOR of the State of New
Hampshire, do hereby proclaim July 26, 2014, as FAMILY FARM DAY in the
State of New Hampshire and encourage all residents to enjoy the bounty
of their local, family farm and acknowledge its contribution to the
health, recreation, culture and history of the Granite State.
